50 Ways Your Canadian Side is Showing

There are many Canadian stereotypes out there and some of them are true. Here are fifty ways that you might be showing your Canadian side. You can turn any statement into a question simply by adding “eh” to the end. Poutine is a staple in your diet. Mayonnaise is a perfectly acceptable condiment for french fries.
